Business Incubator Launched at Edinburgh Business School

Nine businesses are already in residency at the school's first incubator

Heriot-Watt University's Edinburgh Business School has launched its first incubator, offering early-stage businesses the chance to test their ideas and develop potential markets.

The incubator offers residencies free of charge for one year, which include fully equipped office spaces, training and mentoring.

The first set of residencies have already been taken up by nine firms working in fields including geothermal energy, elderly care monitoring and wedding gift registries.

Edinburgh Business School intends to make the incubator available to its MBA and other business graduates, as well as alumni from across the university.
